That's a great idea Cory!  

There are organizations that hook up programmers with non profits.  I'm sure Berkeley has many such organization.  I used to work for a drug and alcohol recover place that also assisted the homeless.  I have some friends in the public health care sector who could probably also steer us towards someone who needs help.  Let me know if you want me to contact them.

Building on Dan’s idea, one thought would be to pick a non-profit that has a very limited admin budget. An organization that helps others, that would benefit from the work of the group yet never be able to pay a programmer. They would not mind that it might take a while and a few iterations to get something useful. By obtaining their business requirements, it would give the group development some clear goals to aim for, and continuity through the meetings.

Hi, Dan-
 
If I had a choice, I'd like to find out the most common type of consulting opportunity, and use that.  This way, it may be possible to find work. 
 
What I hear about is business intelligence and business analysis, but I may be wrong...
If right however, it may be best to choose something like a data warehouse ETL system, taking raw data, designing a reporting schema (most common - pivot? simple queries? other???) and concepts as to how-to make best use of the system, from a sales perspective.  Then hosting the data w/sql server, if not already used in the previous steps...
 
My input ;)

Hi Members,
We have a group consensus so far that we are interested in learning more SQL Server topics. So here's our idea for more fun with SQL Server: I'm putting the question out to our members as to what type of database would be interesting for us to build as our "group project"? We can then keep adding complexity and features to it over the months as we study new topics (thanks, Dave Stearns, for this idea).
What kind of database would you like for us to build, starting in July? Contact management? Business -related?  Tracking global weather patterns?  The sky's the limit. We'll look at everyone's emails and see if we can find the common ground.
- Dan Stern
